Noel Atkins and Pat Phelan, Waterford Crystal workers and Unite Shop Stewards, travelled to Cork last night to speak out against the attempted closure of the plant. They spoke from the heart as workers tossed on the scrap heap after decades of service.In the audio, the background to the conflict is provided along with calls for solidarity around the country and a recognition that will hopefully inspire the country and become the first struggle among many against the attack on our class.
A solidarity group is to be formed in Cork from those present, with the aim of helping the Waterford Workers in whatever way we can and keeping the issue in the hearts and minds of working people across the island.
